Looking for an affordable, compact telescope
Please help me find one that is cheap and small with reasonable quality for a beginner. This will be a gift overseas so if it can fit in my suitcase, that's awesome. I looked at some telescopes under $100 but I'm worried about the quality and/or size. Thank you.
Really a bad idea to use cheap and quality in the same sentence with telescopes. Sorry, that price won't get you much and something small enough to pack in a suitcase will be very minimal in terms of performance - telescope size, in terms of the lens or mirror, is the main factor in telescope performance. That said, you might try a Celestron Explorascope, or similar, that uses a table top tripod.
